Clearly, some great adventures are still out there to be had, which makes it sometimes discouraging when the concept of adventure is reduced to a franchised commodity. Maybe the rest of the world is searching for something we sailors have known for quite some time. For you can make a good case that any trip of any duration on any sailboat is an open-ended adventure in its own right. After all, theres nothing more free or adventurous than taking leave of terra firma, joining the swells and the tide, and harnessing the breeze. No matter if youre daysailing or crossing oceans, for the first time or the hundredth, no two sails are ever the same.
